Administrative leaders have performed observations
of teaching practice for years, but those observations have often been seen as superficial at best and
subjectively biased at worst. And yet, observation,
when done well, can play a vital role in increasing
teacher effectiveness, and has become an important
part of teacher evaluation systems. What can teachers
really gain from being observed in the classroom? And
what should the observers be looking for? In Effective
Supervision: Supporting the Art and Science of Teaching
DVD, researcher and author Robert J. Marzano presents a framework for observing
classroom instruction based on the questions and frameworks he first laid out in the
ASCD best-selling book The Art and Science of Teaching. Marzano presents a detailed
observation protocol and demonstrates how to use it—not only as a tool for analyzing
classroom instruction, but also as a starting point to encourage professional dialogue
among teachers. As you observe teachers in a variety of classrooms, Marzano and
a panel of teachers identify critical aspects of instruction that can help all teachers
move their practice from good to great. The interplay between the lessons and the
discussions will yield “aha” moments for teachers of all ages and subject areas. This
is an essential tool for supervisors, administrators, coaches, and teacher leaders, and
can also assist professional learning communities in their ongoing work.

Turning High-Poverty Schools into High-Performing Schools
WILLIAM H. PARRETT AND KATHLEEN M. BUDGE
If some schools can overcome the effects of poverty to become high performing, shouldn’t we be
compelled to learn from those schools? Although schools alone will never systemically eliminate
poverty, high-poverty, high-performing schools take control of what they can to disrupt the cycle
of poverty and close achievement gaps. Based on these lessons and the insights into the complex
influence poverty has on children, adolescents, and learning, the authors synthesize real-world
practices to provide you with a Framework for Action that ensures your school builds leadership
capacity, fosters a supportive school environment, and focuses intensely on learning.

Build the skills of

GREAT SCHOOL LEADERS
Research shows that leadership responsibilities
have a significant effect on student learning. Let us
help you leverage that power with these resources.

POWERED BY A PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN PEARSON AND ASCD

While much attention has been focused
on the connection of teacher effectiveness to student achievement, there are
very few, if any, resources and tools to
build the competencies of leader effectiveness. Until now . . . In collaboration
with Pearson, Inc., we’re introducing
Principal Compass, the only leadership development program that directly
connects what happens in the principal’s
office to success in the classroom. This
comprehensive online tool is correlated
to a new evidence-based rubric from
Robert J. Marzano.
Principal Compass:
• Delivers over 50 online modules

that build the competencies of
highly effective school leaders.
• Correlates to the 5 domains and
24 categories of the Marzano
evidence-based rubric.
• Gives you 24/7 online access and
ultimate flexibility.
• Includes school-based case studies
that provide the authentic voice of
the practitioner.
• Uses a problem-based approach that
encourages immediate application in
the school.
• Includes on-site coaching and team
development in your school building.
The series of learning modules in
Principal Compass makes it much easier
and time and cost effective to build the
competencies of effective school leadership, including

• Analyzing leadership style and

training needs.

• Targeting support through pro-

• Monitoring progress and providing

Even if you already have a leadership
strategy provided by your district or
state, Principal Compass strengthens
your current program with
• Benchmarking data from more than
300 high-performing principals.
• Authoritative content from leading
experts, such as Robert J. Marzano,
Michael Fullan, Rick Stiggins, Jon
Saphier, and numerous principal
practitioners.
• More than 3,000 classroom and
practitioner videos to help develop
high-performing teams.
